Category Colors in Outlook

Post by STR »

Hello,
I use in Epim different colors for categories and would like to see these synonymous in Outlook. Unfortunately, that does not work.

Hello,

you can change colors for categories in EPIM Pro. What exactly you miss in EPIM Pro? A screenshot demonstrating the issue would help.
Maxim,

I suppose you are synchronising with Outlook and want the colors to synchronise. It is currently impossible, but your suggestion is noted, thank you!

With Google, that's done, too. Actually incomprehensible that Syncing to Services as big As Google Calendar and Outlook doesn't work the same way.

Hello,

unfortunately, here we depend on Google and MS in order to provide API for functions and that's not always possible.

Hello. Just in case anybody reads this thread...

I have recently started to sync my EPIM calendar to Outlook (Office 365, Outlook used via web interface, I do not have the Outlook desktop in my computer as I do not like virus hogging down the system). I have found that even though EPIM does not create categories for the calendar events in Outlook, it provides that information when syncing. Therefore, you can manually create those categories in Outlook (use exactly the same name that you used in EPIM) and even apply corresponding colors. Once you create those categories, your calendar events will appear with the desired color in Outlook.
